Hi Mamas

 

We are moving from NY to CA.  I have been claiming the Religious Exemption for my two school aged children here in NY and thankfully, it's been ok.  Now we are moving to CA and I am unsure how to go about the exemption issue there.  Should I keep our exemption religious based, or seek out the philosophical one?  (I read this is getting harder to obtain).

Will day cares accept unvaccinated children?  Thanks for the help!

You're moving from one of the hardest states for exemptions, to one of the easiest. Right now in California, you just sign the second page of this form, http://www.cdph.ca.gov/pubsforms/forms/CtrldForms/pm286b.pdf and check boxes A and C on the front. Starting January 2014, you'll need to get a doctor or nurse's signature on a form saying that they have discussed vaccines with you. The form is not available yet. The governor said that he wants parents with religious exemptions to be exempt from the health professional signature requirement. It's not known yet if the health department will comply with his request. Right now in California, there is not a separate religious and philosophical exemption. The new form may or may not list them separately. If it does list them separately, you should stick with the religious exemption if you think you might ever return to New York.

 

Daycares should accept the exemption. But to be safe, you should not mention the exemption until your child has been accepted into the daycare. Just turn in the exemption form instead of vaccine records. If you want it to look official, print it double sided on light blue paper.

I was just reading about Sonoma county. Even though the following article is about lack of vaccination you may find some information regarding exemption. Off topic but what I found particularly interesting was that some family physicians were more likely to stop offering vaccines due to their own cost.
